Dunrod Loop

Opened on the Greenock and Wemyss Bay Railway.
Opened on the Clocherlee Quarry Railway.

Description

This loop is between Branchton and Inverkip. There is no station here.

There was a siding (Clocherlee Quarry Railway) to Clocherlee Quarry which crossed the Kip Water. The signal box here was replaced in 1895, just before much of the line was doubled. Dunrod became the northern end of a double track section which ran south through Inverkip to Finnockbog Siding.

The loop is all that remains of the double track section. The box closed in 1967 when Paisley Power Box took over.
